republicans feeling. the state's gop suffered a sweeping defeat. not only did mitt romney lose, voters rejected their stance on the proposition and democrats won a super majority in the state assembly. >> the republican party has no good news other that once you hit bottom there's only one way to go if you're going to survive. >> reporter: east bay political science professor says things couldn't have been more disastrous for the gop. he says the party needs to do a lot of soul-searching if they want to remain relevant in california and the country. >> the country is diverse. the definition of the diverse. the republican party believe they could continue to rely and there would be enough of those people traditional whites that they could be a viable party. >> reporter: he says not only does the party need to be more inclusive it needs to the move to the middle acknowledging the liberal shift of california voters. >> the republican party needs to figure out how to be the right party for california and if they can figure that out, they very well may lead their national party in a better
on nbc yesterday that voters not only said we want barack obama over mitt romney but we want -- we agree with barack obama on the issues. a whole range of issues of which pro-choice is definitely one. tell us about the pro-choice majority. >> we've seen the republican party track to the right on this issue very swiftly in this election. of course, you saw people like mourdock and akin go down in flames. this idea of should rape be an exception when it comes to abortion became really a national issue. it is a problem. >> bill: romney tried to soften it. we know where paul ryan is. the republican party platform says. no exceptions whatsoever. americans don't buy that. >> they don't buy it when you look at the exit polls. we saw an overwhelming majority saying that abortion -- women should have access and should remain legal. roe v. wade should remain in place. if you look at this kind of new electorate and of course, that's where the republicans really ran into trouble. they didn't realize the obama coalition,
we have the final numbers in yet. it wasn't 3 million fewer voters for romney very mccain, it was 1.3 but a million came from california which wasn't going to have an impact on the race. and obama is down from 2008. does it matter? but it's interesting. >> i thought the fascinating thing about it, sean, was that when you take the states obama carried that were not swing states, his vote share dropped by 2 points, 4 points. on the once that were swing states that he carried it dropped by almost the same, 2 points, 1 point. but 90% of the money was spent in the swing states. and we all, politicians, have to go back to the drawing board because basically, fundamentally the campaigns didn't matter. what mattered were the debates, the storm, the convention, benghazi, the jobs report, the unemployment rate, not those tv ads we all ran. >> there were two things i would improve upon if the republicans want to listen to me. i'm a register conservative. number one, i think it was a mistake not to be more aggressive in the third debate in particular. i don't know who came up with that idea but
. obama or romney. still thinking. obama or romney. still not sure. every election these undecided voters wait until the very last -- wait a second were these the same. oh, my, god. the same people from before? really? again. after all these years. >> because we're thinkers. we're thinkers. >> okay. you are going to decide tonight. nobody's getting out of here if they don't make a decision. nobody. >> can i go to the bathroom first. >> jaw meal, are you did you de. clearly i wasn't getting through to them. clearly i'm no expert so i sat down with sh shina. >>y been studying choice and the waive we make choices in our life. >> how do you decide who you're going to be rooting for in this election? >> i did feel that this is not an easy choice. >> oh no, no, no, no. >> jon: the choice lady. the choice lady couldn't choose. >> that's right. >> jon: what did you do. >> you know me, jon i'm kind of known around the office as a problem solver full of ingenuity and whatnot, so i took care of business. give me one good reason why i shouldn't take my shoe off my foot and beat every single one of
-validator of mitt romney. he looks like the voter that barack obama needed to change sides, that former reagan democrat, that white working class guy looking dead into the camera and saying, this guy destroyed us. he took away our livelihood and he made us build the stage that we had to stand on to announce the end of our jobs. it was absolutely the most devastating ad, but what was also remarkable was the romney people had no response. look, they had a six-month lead time on this line of attack because remember something called winning our future pac? they ran a 27 minute ad of this same message. romney, because he survived in florida after that, he seemed to think i can get over this because he didn't respond. >> i talked to -- >> jane mayer, you write in your piece that sarah palin of all people thought that the bain ad had a negative impact on mitt romney's candidacy. she thinks it worked. here she is on fox on election night. >> the realization at this point is that those bain capital ads that voters just got inundated with early on in ohio and some of the other areas as it pertained to t
exactly what you just said, chris. the president laid out a clear vision, and mitt romney laid out a clear vision, too, and at the convention paul ryan's speech was one of the most ideological acceptance speeches in recent memory. and so it was really up to the voters to decide, and they did. >> i will submit there was not much clear about the agenda the president laid out, but we can have that discussion as we go forward. >> thank you. i'll tell you there was a clear agenda from glenn beck and rush limbaugh, and it wasn't felicitous toward a lot of americans. thank you, michael steele, as always. and david corn. >>> coming up, why general petraeus resigned. if he did, as it seems the honorable thing by resigning, what's all the continuing buzz about? we have to find out what's going on in the background. >>> also, more than $1 billion was spent on ads this political season, tv ads. we're going to talk about the one ad, the one ad, that did more to sink mitt romney than all the others and how it got done. this is fascinating. it's a fascinating ad because it really worked. >>> closing down
on "the ed show." >>> the latest excuse for voters choosing president obama over mitt romney sounds like it came out of the schoolyard. yes, i think you might believe what this guy had to say about it on national television. stay with us. >>> we are back. grover norquist is the latest conservative trying to make sense of president obama's reelection. he's the author of the anti-tax pledge signed by nearly every republican congressional member and was counting on a romney presidency. president obama has made no secret to intend the bush era tax cuts for american households making $250,000 a year. so last tuesday was a huge blow to norquist and his anti-tax agenda. this morning norquist was asked if. he saw president obama's reelection as a voter mandate to enact his tax plan and it's clear from his response conservatives are running out of material. >> we just had an election. and the house of representatives was elected to keeping taxes low. the president was elected on the basis he was not romney and romney was a poopy head and you should elect romney. >> he said he won not on policy, b
to come to grips with immigration after mitt romney's poor performance among latino voters. he got less than 30%. do you think republicans will be more open to passing immigration reform now? >> if it's not because of the good bs of their heart, it's an issue that needs to dealt with, it has to be political consideration and the convenience. the loss in the asian community and latino community, for the republican party is huge. this issue is driving that movement toward the democratic party. i would suggest that this is an issue for the new congress. it's doable. we can pass the dream act. we can look at comprehensive immigration reform and stop talking about self-deportation. stop talking about enforcement-only and deal with the reality. i think that the american people want us to do that. it behooves them to listen and come to the table with an open mind anding work on a package that will be both good and just for this country. >> always good to see you, thank you. >> thank you. >>> will she stay or will she go? nancy pelosi is expected to meet with democratic leaders tonight and said
issue is the economy and jobs. they are not single issue voters. they fundamentally disagree with the republican party and candidate romney. they disagree with almost everyone in the republican party about the proper role of government. what services should provide, what are the things government can do to get ahead. they see them being opposed to what they are doing. it's not enough to say we're fine with immigration. >> so how much of a risk is it within the republican party to make a shift on immigration? such as hannity was talking about? there was an about face there. you have some senators saying, we have to work on reform. isn't it all about votes? it's not about their sincerity? >> it's about votes. this is an 11th hour conversion. there's not a great deal of substance to it. not only saying these kind and sympathetic words about latinos and immigration to bring them over to their side, they could cause a fire storm in their own party by sort of unleashing the furies about this issue. remember the last time they tried to do anything about immigration reform? the repub
. >> indeed. the american people affirmed that view with their votes and in exit polls with 60% of voters agreeing taxes should go up on the rich or on everyone. that includes 40% of those who voted for romney/ryan. so has the gop listened and learned from the voters who defeated them? paul ryan is among the members returning to capitol hill today as congress gets back to work. so what does he have to say? >> it was a well-run campaign. we made this campaign about big ideas and big issues, which is the kind of campaign we wanted to run, so we ran the kind of campaign we wanted to run, and it just wasn't enough at the end of the day and we just have to accept that. >> big ideas, big issues that lost. it seems acceptance is the final stage of grief. let's get to our panel now. in washington msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "showdown" and here in new york joy reid, who is managing editor of the grio and william cohen, an author and columnist for the bloomberg view. if i can start with you, joy, if we might take a momentary break from days of lives centcom edition, this week is c

doing worse were right. he got under 70% this time. mitt romney got the 30%. it is the best showing for a republican among jewish voters since 1988 when michael dukakis got only 64% and george h.w. bush got 35% of the jewish vote. so clearly some inroads were made there potential ly by mitt romney. there are some democrats that tell me they think there's a sandy effect on jewish voters because a lot of northeastern voters in general just didn't cast the amount of ballots and maybe the president would have gotten over 70%. we'll see in 2016. our political panel will be here next. but first the white house soup of the day -- i think this should be the official soup of the fiscal cliff, 15 bean. these negotiations have to have a little bit of everything. a legume here, a legume there, taxes, entitlements, cuts, all represented by a different bean. wouldn't that be fun?

searching in the aftermath of the 2012 election might be putting it mildly. while mitt romney failed to connect with the majority of american voters, the republicans' problem is a whole lot bigger than mitt romney. as one long time republican leader told politico, the gop needs to realize it is too old, too white, too male, maybe even want to add too rich to that. this republican says the party has to figure out how to catch up with demographics of a changing u.s. before it is too late. it is well known romney lost between key voting blocks like latinos, women, in battleground states that decided the election. it might be because as cnn contributor david frum put it, the republican message is no longer relevant to middle class america. frum told msnbc it is not just that romney lost, but in the last six presidential elections, the gop lost the popular vote in five of them. frum says over a generation, a once majority party has become a nonmajority party. republican positions on issues like women's rights and immigration are big factors in the decline, and it doesn't help when you hav
-election and seemed like leaders in congress were going to be more willing to compromise, governor romney was sounding a bipartisan theme even during the election. even before, some people would argue the president has a mandate, some wouldn't, bipartisanship was what was persuading the most voters on the trail. after the election there's probably going to be more incentive to strike that note. >> or people will say romney failed with that message time to us to love to zoo lover, gummy bear aficionado and former speaker of the house newt gingrich. >> some would say romney failed by having too many messages but he hit his stride when he moved into bipartisanship. that was the message that worked for him, against the president, and what they stuck with when he eeked up on the president but didn't quite make it. >> how will the progressive wing of the president's base react to this? we know there was information from "des moines register" interview where the president talked about a grand bargain, that stoked the ire of some on the left do not play your cards on this before there is a deal cut. don't giv
the voter restrictions in pennsylvania saying, "this is how we're going to win pennsylvania for mitt romney"? >> well, no, there was a state senator who said that. >> excuse me, a state senator. >> this will allow mitt romney to win the election. now, the implication of that is that the suggestion was that there's such pervasive fraud that he wouldn't be able to win without it. i do not think that is correct. but i think that actually when you parse what he was saying i think that's what he meant. and i think that you're actually illustrating my point in a wonderful way. there's so much distrust that, and of course people aren't inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. let's interpret what he said i theost farae ssle light because there is legitimate distrust that is rooted in the fact that these are communities that don't generally talk to each other. >> but you know, i brought you together because both of you from different perspectives have been writing about the people at the bottom of our economic ladder. is anything going to change for those people? >> you have nearly 50 million
